are Zeiss and Swarovski revered as being the brightest scopes made??? Zeiss did not build their reputation off of the Conquest... ALL the 1k+ tubes are 30mm.
It only makes sense that you can only funnel so much light down a 1" tube say with a 50mm lens and that you would get MORE light through a 30mm... Like an hourglass effect!
The concept that they are the same baffles me!
